Oracle 10g and Fedora 2.0 "Session lasted lesst than 10 seconds"


Hello,
I was installing Oracle 10g on Fedora 2.0
and was at this point
chown -R oracle.oinstall /home
and then the user account disapppeared and root screen
appeared.when i llogged out and tried login as normal
user
it displays this message

"Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds. If you
have not logged out yourself, this could mean there is
some installation problem or that you may be out of
diskspace. Try logging in with one of the failsafe
sessions to see if you can fix this problem"

View details gives this
/etc/X11/gdm/Pression/Default :Resgistering your
session with wtmp and utmp
/etc/x11/gdm/Presession/Default:running :
/usr/bin/X11/Sessreg -a -w
/var/log/Wtmp/-U/var/run/vtmp -n "/var/gdm/:Cserver"
-h "" -1 ":" "ushradha"
-/bin/bash: home/ushradha/.bash_profile:Permission
denied
(gnome-session:4526) :lilignome vfs-WARNING unable
~/.gnomr directory:Permission denied
could not create Per-User gnome configuration
directory
/home/ushradha/.gnome2':Permission denied


Please advice on this
Thanks
Shradha

a failure to initialize you xsession. the (user oracle) permissions you set on your complete home-dir won't allow your normal users access there.

depends. why have you set permissions to oracle?

recursively chmod the user-directories in your /home to the user the directory belongs to:
#chown -R username:usergroup /home/username
then also set permissions to allow read/write there:
#chmod -R ug+rw /home/username
if there are scripts the user has to run in his/her homedir use something like "#chmod a+x filename" there.

now if you need something oracled i suggest to use groups to allow and disallow specific features. read the manpages on your sys (man chmod,...) and/or howtos at www.tldp.org

read the admin/linux guides at the above mentioned link about groups, users and permissions. this is quite a complex issue so i can't give you a quick advise on that.
read the manpages of chmod to get a hint of restoring file and directory permissions so your user will be able to write files (chmod u+w).

I'm having this same problem with Fedora Core 3. I've already modified the ownership and permission of the home directories, but still get the permission denied error with any login except root. I've done an ls -la of all home directories, and the permissions all look to be fine, but t still won't let me write to the directories.

Any suggestions?
